Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is the evidence based cutting edge integration of CBT and Mindfulness skills, which also takes the useful philosophical stances from Existentialism and Gestalt approaches to create powerful counselling and therapeutic tools. ACT is increasingly demonstrating its effectiveness to help clients across a range of psychological issues including:
Stress and Burnout
In this one day introductory workshop, participants will cover:
How to effectively, creatively, compassionately and flexibly utilise the key skills of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help you and your clients create more fulfilling changes, where you and they can often get stuck!
Practice using the 6 core processes of ACT:
• Contact with the present moment
